JBoss going the way of Fedora?

Wednesday, November 15th, 2006

Charlie Peters, RedHat EVP, indicates they’re planning on releasing the next round of jboss products with “community” versions and “enterprise” versions. This is very interesting, as Marc Fluery repeatedly stated at JBossWorld that there were no plans to seperate the free and paid versions of their products. He made it clear the current model would continue as RedHat acuqired JBoss. Maybe he doesn’t have as much control over the JBoss business unit as he originaly thought? Or has he changed his opinion about his support contract based business model?
